MOSCOW, April 22. /TASS /. The Pension Fund of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) has refuted Kiev’s statement on paying out pensions to residents of the Donbas region, the Donetsk news agency reports on Wednesday.

Shortly before, Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseny Yatsenyuk told the Italian La Repubblica newspaper that Kiev allegedly continued to pay pensions to Donbas residents, "in spite of not receiving taxes from the region".

"Yatsenyuk’s statements cannot be called otherwise than a lie," said Chairperson of the DPR Pension Fund Galina Sagaidakova. "Ukraine has not been paying pensions to our pensioners for 10 months. At the moment, the total debt amounts to dozens of billions of hryvnias."

Kiev officially stopped paying out pensions and social allowances to residents of the People’s Republics of Donetsk and Luhansk on December 1, 2014, imposing an economic blockade on Donbas. In actual fact, the payments stopped much earlier, in the summer of the same year.
